I was serious when I said this is a huge deal that "we made it" a year living off-the grid! These children were surprised when momma came home tonight with a special cake. Poppa was surprised too. I could have made it, but then it wouldn't have been a surprise. They didn't know what to think of a store bought cake like this, all fancy and all! It was fun! We all got in on the song of "Happy Birthday" but some of the children (as you can see) just weren't as excited as I was :). They have been feeling a touch under the weather and I think that it may have had something to do with it or that they think mom is very weird at times. I choose to go with the 1st idea and you should too! :) (notice in the photo above that baby girl is pulling big baby boy's hair... I will not show you the photo after this one for that reason as the family party went SOUTH, FAST!)
Hey, life is short and it can be fun to make a party for just about anything and this is the first time I did something like this, make a big-to-do out of something and it ended up being a lot of fun.
